Silicon Valley‘s T.J. Miller was arrested early Saturday morning for battery against his Uber driver, and was released without bail later that day. Miller was present to host the Critics’ Choice Awards on Sunday night.


Miller, as a joke, donned half a tuxedo (on his lower half) with a painted face on his stomach and chest. “That was very fun to watch all your faces kind of not know what to do with that,” he joked.

He went on to address the charge against him, which was described as a heated argument with his Uber driver over Donald Trump, after which the driver called the police. “It’s been in the news all weekend, and it’s really affected me,” Miller began. “The election was definitely hacked by the Russians,” he quipped. “So luckily, we’re doing an awards show here in an airplane hangar in Santa Monica, so we’re safe — what are they going to hack the teleprompter?”

Miller was booked at the Hollywood LAPD station for the misdemeanor and bail was set to $20,000. Miler, however, was released on his own recognizance and is scheduled to appear in court at a later date.
